Volvo S40 Review

>> Thursday, December 25, 2008

frpont.jpgBack in the '80s, when Volvo was famous for making safe cars, the brand's vanguard was an ugly, slow, heavy machine called the 240. Admirers affectionately dubbed it "the Brick." The 240 was indefatigable. When Volvo tried to replace the car with a more "modern" boxy model in the late '80s and early '90s, 240 loyalists-- vegan university professors hauling cans of paint and their dog in a 240 wagon on the way to the farmer's market-- revolted. Finally, in 1992, Volvo execs terminated the 240. Some say that Volvo gained style and lost its soul. But hey, brand loyalists always say that kind of thing. Truth to tell, the old Swede's spirit lives on in the S40.
